Thank you Scott, Jeff and Georg for the comments.

Ronny, liked your first shots of your dog with the 180/2.8;

Mark, congrats on your new 300/4.5. Waiting your first shots and impressions.

First test shots of the newly arrived 28-50mm f/3.5 ais on my preferred "test chart" at infinity, already becoming boring but at least not so boring as a real test chart

Firstly a 4 vertical shots pano at 28mm


4 vertical shots pano with Nikkor 28-50mm f/3.5 ais @28mm by labecoaves, on Flickr
4 vertical shot pano.
D600 + 28-50mm f/3.5 at 28mm, f/8 at 1/500s, ISO 100, hand held.



Then a 6 vertical shots pano at 50mm:

D600 + 28-50mm f/3.5 at 50mm, f/8 at 1/400s, ISO 100, hand held.


This zoom is pretty good from f/5.6 to f/11, peak at f/8-11.
At f/3.5 - 4 borders at FX (D600) are soft.
Bought it cheap (< USD 150.00 including shipping to Brazil - thank you Chuong!!)

It would be perfectly matched with a 50-135 or 75-150 for travel light.

Two quick shots from this sunny morning (the sun is gone now):

D700, 24/2Ai at f/5.6 - university hospital (in this case the pathology)

Looking at these and many other shots I have to conclude that too many of my pictures are too closely framed - lot's of room (pun intended) for improvement ;-)



Georg, I like the water in this first image. Looks very nice in b&w.

Got to shoot a little last Thursday, shooting for a co-worker who wanted a shot of a tree that is blossoming pink (still working on that one). This shot was a surprise to me. It isn't in focus and you really cannot tell what it is, but I like the abstract.

Series E 28mm, free-lensed for light leak affect. This is nearly SOC, all I did was color correct for exposure.

Thanks Ronny.

Here is the blossoming tree my coworker loves.

First shot is with the Series E 28mm. Either I have an excellent copy or the so-called reviewers that rate this so low are out of their minds.

Second is with the Series E 50mm

Jose - Nice shot of the Amphitheater.

Ronny - This is one of the uses that's right up the 180's alley, candid street shooting, well done.

Kevin - Very nice shot of what appears to be a dandelion, love these kinds of images. I also like the tree.

Beautiful flowers Kevin!

Thanks Reagan, but if you someday decide to sell your 25-50/4, depending on the price, I would be interested

I have fallen so far behind here, and I am unable to contribute as well! I sadly sold my last Nikkor, in order to survive a few bills, and now, I am in the process of selling my Nikon D700, and going analogue, as a way to drive myself insane, and to learn the methods of the ancients! The best news is, I will be teaching my daughter for her photography course during her recuperation, before returning to normal school! I will definitely return here often, in order to learn more as well, since I am far away from having an extent knowledge of photography! thanks everyone for everything, and keep on trucking, er, photographing! -Americo

Thanks all. You are correct Leighton, that is a dandelion. I have another shot that is more recognizable, but I prefer the one I posted.
